HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) - NASA Langley engineers taught more than 100 Hampton students how science and math play into their careers.
Engineer David Way's mission was to find a way to land the robot Rover on Mars. Wednesday, his mission was to teach students from Kraft Elementary School about NASA.
"An object in motion tends to stay in motion and an object at rest tends to stay at rest," Way told the students.
Armed with an iPad and a laptop, Bonnie Murray's mission was to show students how math and science can affect their daily lives, like bowling.
"When you start with something kids are familiar with, that gives them context for their learning," Murray said. "We started with bowling so they could see Newton's Law in action."
Lessons from experts with NASA Langley are an attempt to inspire the students to become scientists in the future.
"I know of wanted to be a scientist because I want to go to space," Caleb Smith said. "I want to go to space, I want to get on the moon and like, go on zero gravity."
